Representative Text

1 O look on the fields that are blooming today,
And haste with the light of the morning away;
Our calling obey and our mission fulfill;
Be fervent in spirit and work with a will.

Refrain:
Work with a will; our mission fulfill;
Be fervent in spirit and work with a will.

2 How bright are the sheaves and how fair to the eye,
How graceful they bend to the breeze floating by;
There’s work for us all and a work we must do;
The harvest is great but the reapers are few. [Refrain]

3 Go cheerfully forth to our labor of love
And gather the grain for the Garner above;
A promise is ours in the word of the Lord;
The winner of souls hath eternal reward. [Refrain]
